SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A San Antonio man is accused of using a sword to fatally stab a friend in the chest in an argument over a woman.

San Antonio police officer Matt Porter says Christopher Shows has been charged with murder in the killing early Tuesday at an apartment complex in the South Texas city.

Porter says the men had been drinking alcohol together and that the victim apparently made a pass at Shows’ girlfriend.

He says the victim died at the scene and that the sword was recovered. The victim’s name has not been released pending notification of the next of kin.

Porter says the 33-year-old Shows is being held on $200,000 bond. Police did not immediately have information on an attorney for Shows.
